  1. Not something to be proud of definitely not, my point is that the guys/girls in the UK have to actually ‘work’ for the small amount of salary they earn. My point is that the officers over here are over paid for what they do, as everyone has seen who watched that programme. As you have shown, everyone is entitled to their own opinion.
  2. Those guys working in real prisons should be getting the wages they are getting over here. They are running a real jail...not a ‘youth club/mental asylum’
  3. The job was advertised a few weeks ago and the starting pay is 30k plus. More than the police who start on 24k Prison staff in the UK are on about 18k Absolutely shocking, how can they justify paying them that much, especially after seeing that tv ‘mockumentary’
  4. Yeah breaking point because they have one officer on a landing with 100 prisoners. whilst at the Jurby Youth Club they have 1 Officer to one prisoner. Huge difference
  5. And the ego boosting backfired big time ha
  6. I highly doubt after the uproar that this documentary...sorry comedy caused that there will be a follow up series.
  7. Maybe that’s why they are over familiar with them, for an easy life? I agree, the whole point of the programme was to show the rehabilitation and low reoffending, which was not the case. I think the company who filmed it pulled the wool over the governments eyes and their plan was to make it come across as a joke.
  8. I bet the majority of those ‘guards’ wouldn’t last five minutes working in a real prison like that. Unless they try to be their best mates like they do at Jurby
  9. The very few staff that were shown too looked like power hungry/camera loving narcissists. Probably thought this would get them a gig on love island or I’m a celebrity get me out of here They could have at least found a few good looking ones to be filmed
  10. The shame of it all, especially for his kid
  11. And a personal trainer thrown in as well. How much do PT’s charge? £30 an hour
  12. Wow, ex army officer too. It’s his family I feel sorry for.
  13. I know a guard, and everyone was asked and the majority refused to be shown on camera. They knew how this ‘documentary’ would portray the place, not in a positive way. I doubt there will be a series 2 after all the uproar over it.
  14. Yeah the biggest skive going for the guards, going into work everyday and having a laugh with their ‘mates’ on the wings. As that Whippy said, it’s like a youth club and a mental asylum. He got that right by the looks of it
